how to set up Forecast Close Date default data greater than today?


We always have the issue that Forecast Close Date in Opportunity is given a default value of Dec 31, 2017. The field is required, but when users convert a lead to an opportunity, they don't have a chance to fill up the Forecast Close Date. So when we open the opportunity after the conversion, the system assign Dec 31, 2017 to the Forecast Close Date field, and users could ignore the field.

We have a few reports filtered by the Forecast Close Date, which could run into issues.

Is there any way to modify the default date of it? As long as it is greater than the date of conversion would be great.

Thank you!
